ASCENSION PARISH, La. (BRPROUD) – Ascension Parish Government officials have created a power outage reporting website to keep track of who is or isn’t without power as linemen continue working.
“We keep hearing stories of people without electricity when the outage maps say they should be on,” said President Clint Cointment. “We need to take care of everybody. We don’t want anyone falling through the cracks.”

Officials say when electrical power is restored, return to the link, scroll to the bottom of the form, and check the “Power has been restored” box.
Anyone who cannot report their power outage online can call the Citizens Service Center at 225-450-1200.
“Let’s be clear here: this is to ensure that power companies do not miss even one resident,”
said President Cointment. “It won’t expedite their restoration.”
